Bonnie loves to innovate, which is evident in her latest storyteller, here. It is traditionally made, from gathering the clay, to mixing it, coiling, smoothing, firing and painting with natural pigments and clay slip. But this Mama-to-be storyteller is definitely contemporary, and a first, as far as we know, followed by a few more versions, also on this website.Sweetly appealing, this pretty Mama seems to be exclaiming – what? “Oh, I wish I had pickles and ice cream”? “My goodness, this baby is a runner!”? You can decide on the quote for yourself, and ask all your amused friends for suggestions, as well.Showing that the tradition of commentary through pottery is an ongoing and ever-evolving one, this charming figure is both historic and delightful. What a terrific gift for a new mother-to-be! Or, a storyteller collector.
